Review: Wet n Wild 'Desert Festival' Eyeshadow Palette

Greetings from the Dark Side ^_^

Product Description
This palette has 5 neutral shades of browns. There is a shimmery pinky nude, a shimmery light copper, a matte orange with a brown undertone, an extremely dark brown with orange shimmer, and a satin dark taupe.

Product in Action

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this palette. Not only are the colors nice and pigmented, but they shades works very well together. I was drawn by this palette by the matte orange color, but I found some great surprises in this palette, mainly the pinky nude shimmer and the dark taupe. I have nothing in my collection like those two shades. The bronze-copper and the black are not totally unique to my collection, but they are great colors none the less.

The least pigmented shade of the palette is the copper colors, but the other four shades are fantastic! They blend effortlessly. For the $5 price tag this is a great deal for you gals you like neutral/brown eyeshadows. This is such a versatile palette because you can create simple everyday eyes or smokey night time looks. I highly recommend it.

-great pigmentation
-smooth and blendable texture
-semi-unique colors (for drugstore eyeshadows)

-bronze shade is very sheer and not as smooth as the other shades
Rating: 9.5/10


  1. gorgeous! i love the pigmentation of the reddish coral

  2. i could never pull off orange on my eyes but you make it look so good!

    1. It is definitely not super orange since it has a heavy brown undertone. It is much more wearable than other oranges :D

  3. This is stunning! It looks so classy. I really want so many W&W palettes! I only own one and that was from a trade from Canada! xx

  4. This looks like a really pretty palette & makeup look! I love the dark taupey color!

  5. The orange is gorgeous, and I really like the look you created with it! x

  6. I really like these shades, on their own they all look really nice, especially for $5 ^_^

  7. I was really considering this palette but thought I should wait and see more reviews and swatches. I'm so glad you posted the review and swatches and I love the look you created with it. It's so pretty!

  8. i love your blog, you are so creative! i'll definitely get this one. i got the one in maldives sky (or something like that) & it's not the best i've tried from wet n' wild, but i do like it & the lipsticks are amazing.

  9. this is beautiful. I love the look!
